Staff and alumni from The Cass are contributing to a major exhibition in London’s West End.

Staff and alumni from The Cass are contributing to a major exhibition in London’s West End. 

Celebrated designer Assa Ashuach, a senior lecturer on the MA Product Design course at The Cass, features in a new exhibition at the Aram Gallery in Covent Garden. 

The show, called Send to Print/Print to Send, looks at 3D printing in the modern design industry. Featuring examples of work from the fields of architecture, industrial design, fashion, and product design, the exhibition is a great chance to see The Cass talent on show. 

3D printing, the summary term for rapid prototyping or additive manufacturing, is a means of creating three dimensional objects using a specifically designed printer. In place of ‘ink’ a continuous strand of, most commonly, polyamide or nylon is layered up to create a 3D form based on a computer drawn image. 

Early uses of 3D Printing were for creating prototypes as the process, although costly, is much quicker than producing a handmade model. More recently, rapid prototyping technology is being used to produce ‘finished’, end designs. 

Assa Ashuach has been at the forefront of these developments and students at The Cass are also offered unique access to this innovative technology at Metropolitan Works, the creative industries centre based at London Metropolitan University.
